From the Allen County-Scottsville Citizen Times
The Allen County Health Department hosted the Western Kentucky University Institute for Rural Health Development and Research Mobile Health lab last Thursday, and 60 local women took advantage of the opportunity for free bone density screening in hopes of combating of detecting osteoporosis. Allen County Medical Reserve Corps volunteers provided educational materials and served calcium-rich foods. Serving the Barren River Area Development District since 2002, the lab program also provides screenings for blood sugar, cholesterol and more.

Western Kentucky University’s (WKU) Department of Public Health is now offering a Joint Undergraduate Master’s Program, JUMP-MHA.
The Institute for Rural Health (IRH) in the College of Health and Human Services (CHHS) received a $50,000 grant from the Good Samaritan Foundation Inc., a ministry of the Kentucky Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church.
Kelsey Bullock, a graduate student in the Master of Science in Environmental and Occupational Health Science, will intern with the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
